How to Get Past Any Censorware

This is not an opinion article, so I will not be delving into the reasons why I oppose censorware (applications that block certain web content). There are plenty of other places to do that.

This is, however, my attempt to get blocked by every censorware program that exists. To do so, I will be explaining in detail how to get past every single web filter ever made.

Step 1: Download this FREE spyware
That's right, we are going to steal your administrator's password and use it to shut down the censorware. To do so, we will be using a free application that is classified as a Keylogger. This means that it monitors the keyboard and records every keypress for later viewing by the spy (in this case you). You can download this free no-nonsense keylogger that doesn't run out (it ain't a trial, it's the full thing) that can hide itself from Windows, logs specific application activity, and uses a hotkey that you specify to unhide it. Click here to download. (A remote proxy is used for security.)

Step 2: Install Perfect Keylogger Lite
Next install the keylogger to a non-suspicious location (don't use C:\Program Files\Perfect Keylogger Lite\). A personal file folder works best (something like C:\Dan\Pictures\PKL\).

Step 3: Set Up The Options
Next, set up the options in PKL: Tell it to run when Windows starts, but start up in Hidden Mode. Set a hotkey for revealing PKL by clicking in the text box that reads "None" and then pressing a series of keys (like Shift-Ctrl-F4). Set a password so only you can open the log. Additional settings are up to you. You may want to tell it to only monitor keypresses in censorware applications by putting "NetNanny" in as a keyword.

Step 4: The Trap
Now you must wait until your administrator comes along to check the censorware and make sure it is working. Alternatively (to speed up the process) you may ask them to add a blocked site to the whitelist, just to get them to enter the password.

Step 5: Check the Log
Tada! You have now learned how to fight fire with fire. Open the log and there it is, your precious password. You may use this to alter the settings of the censorware, shut it down entirely, or even uninstall it from the system!

Hey, I ain't no criminal. I'm just sick of this. Every time my admin changes the password, I know wat it is within two days. It never fails.

Just do a search for Perfect Key Logger. The hidebehind.net proxy is down and I have yet to find another, so for now you will have to use this semi-secure link: http://www.tucows.com/preview/301938
